on december 28th. >> what's the reason response to this. >> well, house speaker today said if president obama has a plan on paper to extend them, he will take a look at it, so that is a little bit of a hint of some potential break through, however, he reviewed the republican perspective of it's about the economy, and we have a plan to improve the economy, and that's not related to social benefit programs. >> that we create more american jobs and better american wages. the republicans continue to focus on strengthening the economy for middle class families. that's why we passed nearly 150 bills many of them will help our economy, they are still sitting in the united states senate. so you hear a difference, how republicans approach things and democrats approach things. he also used his time to rail against obama-care, the federal healthcare law, he says that's one of the other priorities that and getting the economy going less so than working on the unemployment benefit issue. >> and torment, the labor department releases the november employment numbers. stick with al jazeera america for full c

the same thing on the house side. we need to come together. as president said when he was senator obama this is not a red state or blue state or purple so we need to come together. >> that's a good place to end it. i'd like to give you the last word but i'm out of time. >> i wholeheartedly agree with angela. >> i figured you would so thank you both. have a great day. >>> let's take you to washington right now where president obama's addressing a forum on u.s. policy in the middle east. his remarks come amongst tense relation, between the u.s. and israel over that recent nuclear deal with iran. and a new push for a peace agreement between tel aviv and the palestinians. our molly heninburg joins us live from washington with the very latest. >> israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has called the deal with iran a, quote, historic mistake, suggesting its too early to be easing sanctions on iran. part of what president obama will try to do today in that speech as he did earlier this week at a hanukkah reception at the white house, is to reassure israel hat the u.s. won't be duped by ira
